Students from Oregon High School’s Open Program, an approved Local Complete Count Committee for the 2020 Census, attended the Census EDU Summit today at Malcolm X College in Chicago. Students heard from Governor JB Pritzker and several panels of guests regarding their project focus this year, the census. They even got to meet Dr. Carmen Ayala, the State Superintendent of Education, who was excited to hear about the OHS Open Program! Several students had a chance to be interviewed by Chicago media regarding their involvement as high school students in this incredibly important project. Be looking for future posts this winter and spring from our students who will be coordinating efforts locally for a complete and fair count this census year.
